Read about `Google Cloud Messaging <https: developers.google.com="" cloud-messaging="">`__

.. code-block:: python

from gcm import GCM

gcm = GCM(API_KEY)
data = {'param1': 'value1', 'param2': 'value2'}

# Downstream message using JSON request
reg_ids = ['token1', 'token2', 'token3']
response = gcm.json_request(registration_ids=reg_ids, data=data)

# Downstream message using JSON request with extra arguments
res = gcm.json_request(
registration_ids=reg_ids, data=data,
collapse_key='uptoyou', delay_while_idle=True, time_to_live=3600
)

# Topic Messaging
topic = 'topic name'
gcm.send_topic_message(topic=topic, data=data)
